This week at Bungie, we are welcoming back some old friends.

First off, if you still haven’t finished the Destiny 2 campaign, there will be some SPOILERS in this blog post. If you haven’t learned the fate of the City, yet, you should definitely go play through it right now. We’ll still be here waiting for you. Seriously, go do it now!

Now that you’ve defeated Ghaul, we are ready for a special event called Faction Rallies. Starting on September 26 at 2 AM Pacific, you will be able to volunteer your services in support of your favorite faction, or the one that holds the loot you most desire.

We spoke with Senior Designer Tim Williams to find out what Faction Rallies is and how players can join in on the fun.

Tim Williams: Each of the factions of the Tower is having a rally to collect resources for its cause. They’re recruiting Guardians to gather supplies for their faction and destroy enemy resources. They’ll offer a suite of rewards to help the Guardians rise up against any enemy threats. As an incentive, each faction has set aside a powerful weapon to entice players to choose their side. The faction whose Guardians collect the most faction packages will be declared the winner. The winning faction will offer the weapon to everyone, but all who pledged loyalty will receive it with a huge discount as repayment for their contributions to their faction’s cause.

Arach Jalaal from Dead Orbit, Lakshmi-2 from Future War Cult, and Executor Hideo of New Monarchy will return to the Tower to ask you to pledge your loyalty. Before you can make this choice, you must first reach Level 20 and gain access to the Tower. You will only be able to pledge to one faction per character.



Once you have chosen your side, your mission will be to return to the wild and complete activities in support of your faction. You can do public events, explore Lost Sectors, complete strikes, clear the raid, or compete in the Crucible. As you complete these activities, you will be rewarded with faction tokens that you can turn in for packages full of loot.

Dead Orbit




Future War Cult




New Monarchy





In addition to all of the gear on display above, each faction will be offering a special weapon as a reward to be sold if they emerge victorious. Everyone who pledged to the winning faction will be able to purchase it for 1,000 glimmer. Anyone who did not pledge can still get it, but will have to pay a higher price of 50,000 glimmer.

Here’s what is up for grabs during this event.

Dead Orbit Scout Rifle


Future War Cult Pulse Rifle


New Monarchy Sidearm


You can earn faction Tokens to turn into your faction of choice all the way up until 2 AM Pacific on October 3. We will declare a winner later that day at 10 AM Pacific. Good luck Guardians, and may the best faction win!

He gives you a good kicking if you turn up from a different faction :rant:

No, you can't
Bit of a glaring omission right there.
Still i'm sure I should have enough stashed away.
Should be hopping on tonight after the gym and dinner.
Get the clan up to level 3, hopefully!
May have to go MIDA-hunting too. :)

I haven't done the mission that gives you the mida quest yet.
I might hop on later as well to pick up that scout.

I know I haven't went a tad nuts at the gunsmith store buying and fitting purple +5 armor mods last night. 5000 glimmer just to fit one.

What we know for certain is that Arach Jalaal is the champion of this first Faction Rally. His victory was not undisputed. Each faction put some respectable points on the board. Once the 61 Million reward packages were counted, Dead Orbit emerged the most profitable faction by a margin of more than 2 Million. New Monarchy was a close second. Future War Cult was an even closer third.

I was surprised to see New Monarchy in 2nd place but after the quote from Kotaku there must have been a lot of people who hate the fellow destiny players. :lol:

NEW MONARCHY
The Actual Reason: You hate your fellow Destiny players and want to stick them with a crappy sidearm instead of the scout rifle or pulse rifle they’d get if one of the other factions were to win.
Saying that though their titan armor was very nice plus they had some sexy red/gold shaders.

I've since disscovered that The Number was an excellent Auto Rifle for the energy weapon slot from FWC, it has excellent range and low recoil. It's perfect for those in the crucible who like to keep their distance, or in my case a warlock who crumbles if you breath on her.
